Yes, but i'm thinking is red rotala with 2 leafs around (like rotala sp. 'green') is r.rotundifolia but pink rotala with 3 leafs is r. indica but i may be wrong, do you know explanation.Phil Edwards said:R. indica and R. rotundifolia are the same plant. "indica" has been used for a long time, but the proper species epithet is "rotundifolia". It has very round leaves when grown emersed. Rotundifolia means round-leaved.
Are you sure Phil? I know that on Tropica page r.rotundifolia=r.indica but i'm not sure that true. I think that rotundifolia grown much fast than r.indica, had thiner leafs and is red-orange (r.indica is pink-red)Phil Edwards said:R. indica and R. rotundifolia are the same plant.
I don't think so because i buy my 2leafs rotala in shop and this was pot from Tropica Denmark(it was r.rotundifolia, i think Tropica haven't R.sp "Rio" in his offert). Compare r.rotundifolia and r.rotundifolia green...it's the same species: thin leafs, two per node, fast grown....only color is different :wink:. If r.indica=r.rotundifolia why she don't looks like r.rotundifolia green and she has 3leafs per node?Raul-7 said:I think that is Rotala sp. 'Rio', I remember Alex from Brazil showing me a picture of it, it had two leafs per node.
